Laying on the grass by the shore
Posing next to a mother birch tree
Wavy & windy start...but she stayed afloat
Floating along the rocky shoreline
Brought into calmer waters by the dock
Coming in for a beach landing
I want to thank John Lindman at the Bark Canoe Store for putting together a kit with the raw materials as well as my wife for letting me hijack the dining room table for the past few months on this build. It has inspired me to want to build more birch bark crafts with serious intentions of making a full scale one. For now, this one is going on the cottage wall with a custom-made frame that I've already made plans for.
